    Re: Expected battery life

    Had a friend's battery die one WEEK after buying it... Luckily I had my power pack with me that he used to drive from PA to CT.

    On my '04 GL 1800 I finally put a new battery on in 2019. I bought this bike new from the dealer in October 2004. Never had one problem anywhere.

    Dam, fifteen years out of a battery! That is impressive. Ever notice that a stock battery lasts longer then one bought off the shelf?

    I have had good luck with batteries in my wings. I don't put them on a tender. I think by not doing so, allows me to know when the battery is getting weak. I think that it's easy to tell when they are loosing their ability to recover.
